I appreciate that the new owners may wish it were otherwise, but you, I, Adam - and every other Bostonian not beholden to some corporate overlord - are free to call that building whatever we want. Also, we can call the arena where the Bruins and Celtics play "The Garden" (and we all did till the current owners gave up and re-embraced the name), we can call the highway that rings the inner metro "128"...and we can call the skyscraper at 200 clarendon "The Hancock" (or the "Plywood Palace", if you're old enough).

And apparently South Station is now named after Dukakis. I have yet to hear anyone refer to it as that, though.
